Rumor Mora fears two things: hellhounds too strong for him to kill, and failure. Jude Welton has two dreams: for humans to stop killing monsters, and for his strange abilities to vanish.
But in no reality should a boy raised to love monsters fall for a boy raised to kill them.
Nyx Llorca keeps two secrets: the moon speaks to her, and she’s in love with Dahlia, her best friend. Braeden Tennant wants two things: to get out from his mother’s shadow, and to unlearn Epsilon’s darkest secret.
They’ll both have to commit treason to find the truth.
During one twenty-seven-hour night, if they can’t stop the war between the colonies and the monsters from becoming a war of extinction, the things they wish for will never come true, and the things they fear will be all that’s left.
Oh man, sounds exciting right? I’ve been eagerly awaiting 27 Hours for a while now, I mean a sci-fi epic centered around a group of queer and PoC teens? Like, what isn’t to love about that? And that premise!
Okay, so here we go. The big reveal! Are we ready? I don’t think you’re ready because it’s freaking awesome! Like it’s so cool!!!
I mean just look at it! The cool colors, the blend of purples and blues and greens. The font! The upside down city, which I have to admit I’m a total sucker for. I just love it so much it’s so awesome, and sort of makes me more impatient to get my hands on this gorgeous book!
And now a little bit about the total bad-ass behind 27 Hours, Tristina Wright!
Tristina Wright is a blue-haired bisexual with anxiety and opinions. She’s also possibly a mermaid, but no one can get confirmation. She fell in love with science fiction and fantasy at a young age and frequently got caught writing in class instead of paying attention. She enjoys worlds with monsters and kissing and monsters kissing. She married a nerd who can build computers and make the sun shine with his smile. Most days, she can be found drinking coffee from her favorite chipped mug and making up more stories for her wombfruit, who keep life exciting and unpredictable.
Still trying to figure out the mermaid thing.
27 Hours, the first book in the brand-new Nightshade Saga will be available wherever books are sold on October 3, 2017!
